Unreal Tournament 3 on 360 Gets a Release Date, Sorta

unreal-tournament-32.jpg

Epic Games has really been dancing around announcing the release date for Unreal Tournament 3. They told us it was coming along nicely and what “exclusive” content 360 owners would be treated to, but they kept avoiding the topic of a release date. Today they took one baby step closer to finally revealing it, as they announced that the game will be released this summer.

As I said with those “exclusive” maps and they amount to being extremely insignificant if the 360 version doesn’t have mod support. (And all signs are pointing to no on that subject, thanks to Microsoft.) But, in fairness, Epic’s hands are tied, after all, so at least they’re trying to provide something of substance that wasn’t delivered in the PC or PS3 versions.

We’ve got a new trailer for the game up on FileFront, but it’s behind an age gate, so click here to check it out.

I wonder how long it will be before the ‘exclusive maps’ are added to the PS3 and PC versions via mods? LMAO

It’s about time.

I’ve only played the PC version of UT3, but unfortunately the rig I played on didn’t handle it too well. So perhaps I’ll get a better experience off the 360 version.
